To be a cake decorator you have to believe in yourself first, then take everything a step at a time. First, think of if this choice is really what you want to do. Second, check out cake decorating shops. Maybe they can help you. And third, go to some classes for cakes/baking. They are a lot of fun. All you have to do is believe in yourself and you will make it really far.

A cake decorator also spends much of the day on their feet. In and out of coolers, freezers and near ovens. Hauling large buckets of icing. Dealing with customers face to face and on the phone. There is often a customer trying to find fault with your product, in an attempt to get a discount. Working in a shop, decorating, there are often pressures to complete so many cakes in a shift. Wear an apron, for at the end of the shift, the apron will have many colors from icing upon it.

Helpful qualifications maybe biology, home economics, baking, and definitely business subjects. You may be able to create cake masterpieces, but if you don't have some business training, you won't be able to make any money to support yourself.

there isn't really a specific degree need to become a cake designer. you would just need to take some basic decorating courses. you would need to know how to fill, frost, use the different tips, how to use fondant and gum-paste. its just the matter of finding the right school. :D

No college is required to become a cake designer. One might attend vocational school and specialize in commercial baking, or simply find a job in a bakery where one could learn to design and decorate cakes.

You can simply bring that photo to a cake designer at a bakery and ask them if they do custom cakes. If they do, you can show them the picture and ask them if they can make a cake that is extremely similar to the one in the photo, or a likeness of it.

The skills I look for in a wedding cake designer start with flair and imagination. To design someones perfect cake, be it for a wedding or other occasion, you have to be able to imagine it, to be passionate about cakes!Office skills, such as word processing, social media skills, etc. are also required.In my company, I also look for graphic design / skills to be able to sketch your idea, and a high level of organisation, to be able to manage all of your customers.

cake designer$A cake designer can earn an endless amount of money depending on the demand in your area. The best way to figure out what you should be charging is to visit similar businesses ranging from high end to lower end and see what they charge and how their business is going. A friend of mine did it in NJ and after expenses, her profit was $52,000. Less than the salary of a lawyer per year(depending on state), which is what her parents wanted, but she is VERY happy. Good luck!It depends on how intricate you want the cake to be. The more time needed to decorate it adds up onto the price of the cake.

To mix and bake a simple cake, it will take less than an hour. If you are decorating or making a more elaborate cake, it will then take longer than that.
